PRE­STON defender Bai­ley Wright says his new con­tract marks a re­mark­able 12-month turn­around.

Last sum­mer Wright was not wanted by for­mer boss Gra­ham West­ley but the ver­sa­tile Aus­tralian was given a sec­ond chance.

Now the 20-year-old is the young player of the year and has signed a two-year deal.

“It was a bit of strange sum­mer for me last year, not know­ing my fu­ture,” he said,

“I was quite close to leav­ing. If I’d had the chance to go some­where, I prob­a­bly would have gone. It didn’t work out and I’m happy that I’m still here. My goal is to get the club back into the Cham­pi­onship.”
